sorry go. >> you said earlier it was a beautiful fall day and it was. perfect football weather. >> deaf if thely and the weaning was great. so, we hope people did get a chance to get outside and enjoy it. and the week ahead is looking -- isn't look too shabby. tonight a few clouds rolling in. that's a beautiful shot of the national cathedral as you can see. we have clouds that are continuing to stream in but it's not going to be all bad
6:47pm
and not all clouds heading into the forecast. let's look at weather headlines. chilly nights continue. we are not getting much of a break from that but temperatures will be on rise as we move through the later part of the week. we will watch a coastal system as well. and thanksgiving so far is looking like it's going to be great thursday for everybody. our highs today, from 4 to 5 below the seasonal average 55 at reagan national and dulles. 51 at bwi-thurgood marshall and outside right now 48 at dulles and 50 at quantico and same at culpepper. 49 at baltimore and we have got 46 to the west at cumberland and 45 degrees at martinsburg this hour. and lows tonight are going to be once again on the chilly side. we are talking about pretty much around the low 30s or a few areas that will see temperatures a little bit warmer than that. couple upper 30s as well as low 40s. but let's look at radar and i will show you the system we are
6:48pm
keeping a very close eye on right here to the south. this is a low pressure system that is spec to -- exspbted to start to -- expect to start to push up the coast it developed through here. it will bring rain to the carolinas but other than that, for us, so far, looks like we might get increasing clouds from it. and then it's going to push its way out to sea. so, looks like we are not going to be affected by this as we head into the next couple days or so. let's go back to the weather maps. with that system, we have a ridge of high pressure to the north and that's going to help us get rid of the cloud as we move through into tomorrow and we will start out with cloudy skies but then we will see some partly sunny skies start to pick up. so the ridge of high pressure to the north that system to the south, in between the two we will get a pretty good northeastern flow pushing in across the region. i say a little patchy fog in the early morning hours but other than that not a whole lot happening. monday, mostly cloudy. then we will start to transition to partly sunny skies as some of the clouds start to move out and this
6:49pm
ridge of high pressure fairly strong and dominant is going to stop this low pressure system from pushing right along the coast up to the north. so that's going give us a little bit of a break from having to see wet weather with it. futurecast showing you as we move through into tomorrow it's spinning off the coast. could see a few showers for central areas of virginia. and then as we head through into tuesday and wednesday period it's still seems to be moving its way off the coast. so it's not hugging it all or pushing inland and heading its way up as we wouldn't want to deal with it that way. wednesday, here's the travel forecast if you getting ready to go anywhere for thanks giving the there areies and rain to the pacific northwest to the south. a little rain for areas of western texas otherwise along southern gulf states we will see sunshine with a few clouds. and showers across the south for florida and as we head up the eastern seaboard it will be dry with just some wind that will pick up as a result of that same system. by midday tomorrow, we are talking 51 degrees with a few clouds and partly sunny by the time we get into the course of the afternoon hours. and it will be a fairly
6:50pm
pleasant day. 40 for tonight for the overnight low. and a northeastern wind and tomorrow's high we are talk the double 5s kicking in. now here's accu-weather seven dane forecast. fox 5 here's a look at the sunshine pretty m across the board. plenty of sunshine for thanksgiving day which is going to be very nice. we are warming up as well to the low 60s in the end of the week. looks like that will happen another system developing off the south coast mock into the end of the week. but it looks far off to call but a great week look good. >> thank you. the redskins promised to be rejuvenated after the bye week. >> and they r today they delivered on that promise. just ask the eying elogist. scott smith is -- eagles. scott smith is up next with thereds dominating performance.
